Ant Removal Palatine IL: Most Common House Ants
Although there may be hundreds of ant species in the states, there are a select few that commonly invade Illinois homes. While these ants may look and behave somewhat different from one another, each of them can be threatening in their own way. Four of the most common household ants you will find in the Palatine IL: area:
Carpenter Ants – These are large black ants that can grow as big as 5/8 on an inch long. Carpenter ants build their nests within wood. What this means is that if they take up residence in your home, they can create a lot of costly damage as they tunnel about inside the house’s structure. Controlling or eliminating carpenter ants is very difficult without the right training and equipment. The problem is you have to wipe out their nest. Just killing off the ones out scouting for food doesn’t address the real problem: the hundreds more in the nest
Odorous Ants – Odorous ants can be either dark brown or black and can range in length from 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch long. These ants enjoy nesting under floor boards or inside walls. Once they make their way into a home, they can damage the home’s structure and contaminate any food left out in the open.
Little Black Ants – These shiny black ants only grow to about 1/16 of an inch long. Little black ants colonize such things as logs, stumps or mulch. They can often be found invading homes while in search of food. Since they are so small, they easily gain entry through cracks in window frames, door frames or around a house’s foundation.
Pharaoh Ants – These are very tiny ants (usually about 1/16 of an inch). They can be from yellow to red in color, but most often are amber. They usually feed on sweets and dead insects, but they’ve also been known to feed on blood under wound dressings, vomit, and other bodily fluids in hospital settings. They often travel throughout buildings through wall voids and electrical conduits in search of food.
Pharaoh ants are among the most difficult of all insects to control due to their small size, their large colonies (often numbering in the tens or hundreds of thousands of workers and usually having multiple queens), their hidden foraging habits, and their peculiar ability to select a new queen if a group of workers gets separated from the main colony.
